Biographical Info

Isabel Ryan is a junior from Locust Valley, New York studying Molecular and Cellular Biology with a minor in History. Isabel was first inspired to pursue medicine after hearing her grandfather talk about the impact he had on his small community as a doctor of family medicine. Pursuing an occupation as a surgical oncologist, Isabel is passionate about the lack of progressive surgeries for patients with stage 4 cancer. Her interests perfectly align with her experiences such as the summer she spent shadowing the head of surgical oncology at Mount Sinai and the research she does at Carnegie Institute, where she works on elucidating the features of lamp brush chromosomes in salamanders. On-campus, Isabel is a member of Hop Help Tutoring, Phi Mu Fraternity, KCREBS, and SHARE. Her talents are not only limited to the classroom setting. Isabel can also say the alphabet backwards!
